Civil rights lawyer and candidate for mayor of Minneapolis Nekima Levy-Pounds read a statement from Philando Castile’s mother at an anti-NRA march in front of NRA headquarters in Fairfax, Virginia, on July 14. “We have an ugly truth staring us in the face,” read Levy-Pounds from Valerie Castile’s statement. “We must keep fighting and standing up to make sure that nothing like this happens to any other mother’s son.” Castile was 32 at the time he was shot and killed in the Twin Cities during a traffic stop. The march, from NRA headquarters in Virginia to the Justice Department in Washington, is part of a two-day event against gun violence. Credit: Facebook/Qudsia Raja via Storyful
